Disney XD has ordered a third season of the Emmy Award-nominated animated series Marvel’s Spider-Man, which will be titled Marvel’s Spider-Man: Maximum Venom.

The series follows teenager Peter Parker as he learns to navigate life as the superhero Spider-Man, with the third season featuring the villain Venom summoning a devastating threat from its home planet. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Maximum Venom is slated to bow on Disney XD in spring of 2020. New season two episodes of Marvel’s Spider-Man will debut in September on Disney XD and DisneyNOW.

Marc Buhaj, senior VP of programming and general manager at Disney XD, said: “We are excited to have Spider-Man and Venom leading this brand-new chapter. These two characters are fan favorites and the Marvel Animation team has delivered a smart, action-packed season for a new generation. We’re grateful for the opportunity to further expand the world of Marvel’s Spider-Man with Venom and continue fresh, heroic storytelling with this third season order.”

Cort Lane, senior VP of Marvel Animation & Family Entertainment, added: “This is the most epic conflict in the history of Marvel Animation. We planted the seeds in two seasons of Marvel’s Spider-Man and three seasons of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, but you don’t need to have watched them to be blown away by this colossal confrontation. While a ton of guest heroes will be on hand, Peter Parker’s special link to Venom makes him the only hero who can tip the scales to save humanity.”
